violence. in the last week of april two homicides occurred that caused community concerns one was mr. boywyer's murder and mr. flucker who took place on april 6. though unrelated both murders shared a similarity. both were outstanding citizens minding their business, carrying on their business and were met with violence that caused them to get killed. funerals of both men were attended by my staff and arrests were made and charges were filed against the person responsible for mr. flucker's funeral. that particular case the family got answered and they got answered very quickly. in this particular case it took us a little longer. today as i mentioned earlier we
5:22 pm
attended the funeral of mr. clint bowyer and we shared the concern and the sadness that this family and the pain they suffered with the innocent loss of life. i am deeply, deeply concerns that the person that's responsible for this man's murder raised in the age of 14 to 16 years old, that is unacceptable. this is a disturbing trend that we've noticed here in this city. that far too often in recent past we've noticed that the age of the suspects involved in many violent crime including robberies have now ranged between 13 to 17. this again is unacceptable and i call on the parents. the school district adults to help change the cycle, the vicious psych that has taken
